Today was India Today’s turn to get castigated on social media (#ShameOnIndiaToday) – and deservedly so: this was after the magazine’s website posted a video with caption “Deepika or Kim Kardashian who’s your choice for a one night stand”. India Today took down the article and offered an apology, “Dear readers, we made a mistake. We are sorry,” though the URL still contains the same caption. 
Soon after India lost to Australia in the World Cup today, Headlines Today showed images of people lined up somewhere in India with one among them throwing down a television set in presumed disgust. Rajdeep Sardesai even wondered "if they were second-hand" because the cameras were around. A similar thing had happened in Pakistan when that country had lost. If this is done for the cameras who initiates it?  The 'angry' who want their moment of fame on TV or the TV crews looking for action?

In the good old days most parties including the Congress, had just one spokesperson, like V. N. Gadgil, and they had a full briefing on policy from a boss, like Indira Gandhi. On 24 March, the Congress announced a revamped communication team, probably in preparation for Rahul’s anointment as the party chief.  The 70-member team chosen from different parts of country has two-third members below 40 years of age. It will have 31 media panelists to articulate the party’s views in the electronic media,” HT reported.  To counter one indefatigable Sambit Patra?
